Jill Got Roots

You Got Me - The Roots ft Jill Scott

From The Roots Come Alive this version features the songs writer standing in for Erykah Badu and showing why she was to become the super songstress she is now

Still sends a shiver down my spine!

The Sun Ain't Shining for Jacko

Ain't No Sunshine (SSY remix) - The Jackson 5

Adding some nicely blunted beats this remix from SSY is on the second of two Japanese albums dedicated to new mixes of Jackson 5 favourites from way back when Michael was all sweetness and light!

Originally out in 2002 these albums have been recently re-released

Get them from Juno

Miss Peaches On The Streets

Out On The Street Again - Etta James

Superbad rare groove from one of the first ladies of soul

Etta James was going through rehab when this was cut adding a raw edge to an already dark funk track

From the 1974 album Come a Little Closer
